    Hi everyone, well I had been on Alli for 6 weeks & lost a stone so decided to go to the doctors to see if I could get Xenical & my doctor was very supportive & said yes, I was so pleased! Alli was brilliant but I'm on maternity leave & really couldnt afford to keep buying it, I have another 3 stone to lose but I'm really motivated, glad I stumbled across this site everyone seems really helpfull & supportive, the Alli one was always very quiet & never got any answers. One thing I would like to ask about is takeaway??do any of you have it? going by WW a chow mein is one of the lowest but Im worried about the oil in it?? is it better to just stay away from it altogether? many thanks & look forward to chatting to you x:)

    Hello and welcome.

    I've had chicken chow mein and haven't had any tango moments. I'm following ww's and mushroom chow mein is the best one to go for.

    I've had 1/2 portion of boiled rice with a portion of chicken and mushroom a couple of times although I take it out if the gravy just in case and I've been fine

    I think when it comes to take away then everyone reacts to them differently, it would be your choice, if you wanted to avoid any chance of a reaction then you need to stop the Xenical 3 days before you eat the said meal... or maybe you could make your own?

    Without sounding pissy, Xenical is a bout a change in lifestyle and making the right choices, and I don't think takeaway fits into that (ok, for treats etc) but I think making your own alternative would be a better choice :)
